: Rear License Plate Mounting Bolts/Screws

09-29-2011, 02:41 PM
I have my car shipped from the dealer after a European Delivery and it doesn't appear that the screws/bolts to affix the rear plate to the rear plate holder are in the car. Anyone know the size of these bolts/screws on a GT?

No dealer nearby and was going to hit a hardware or auto supply store on the way home.

congrats!! did you just get her? our screws were in the little space in the trunk (where the rear parcel shelf goes when you put the seats down).
sorry, I searched and couldn't find a definite answer (bavauto lists a 4.8mm x 16 mm screw). found the owners manual online and it's not listed there either. hope this helps and enjoy the car!!

Don't remember the size but they are metric and most hardware stores have them. Get stainless steel when you do so they can be removed if needed. The black oxide ones are simply coated steel from China and rust in place.
